Transcendence Theatre Company
"The Journey from Broadway to Sonoma"
Founders and resident artists of the Transcendence Theatre Company look forward to sharing the history, mission, and greater vision of their company with Oakmont residents. After a 5 year adventure, Transcendence Theatre found its home in Sonoma Valley and recently signed a contract to produce theatre at Jack London State Park through 2019!. Please join the Transcendence Theatre artists for a symposium filled with stories and song as we share exciting details of our upcoming season of "Broadway Under The Stars" in Jack London State Park.
The Transcendence Theatre Company (TTC) believes that those who commit to going beyond the usual limits can change the world in extraordinary ways.
TTC produces the award-winning "Broadway Under The Stars in Jack London State Park" concert series that is taking place in Sonoma County this summer.
In 2012, the concerts won the Broadway World San Francisco Award for "Best Special Theater Event," while attracting over 7,500 attendees, and raising over $27,000 for the recently threatened Jack London State Park.
Last season's concerts included Broadway performers from the casts of Mamma Mia, Les Miserables, Chicago, La Cage Aux Follies, Gypsy, Hairspray, Follies, White Christmas, Million Dollar Quartet, Mary Poppins and more.
TTC is also honored to have recently assisted Oakmont in kicking off its 50th Anniversary Celebration with a special sold-out performance at the Berger Center.
In the words of the Sonoma Index-Tribune, "At the risk of redundancy, hyperbole and shameless fawning, we are compelled to acknowledge once again the extraordinary gift to the Sonoma Valley that is the Transcendence Theatre Company... Transcendence is composed of stellar performers with sterling credentials and oh-my-God gifts of music and dance."
